Labor Day at the Inner Harbor

I hope all of you had a wonderful Labor Day!  Charles and I decided to take CJ to the Inner Harbor and the weather was perfect!!  (DC hung out with my parents so we could have some quality time with CJ.)

We took at trip to the top of the World Trade Center (27 stories up) to see the gorgeous panoramic views of the city. Much to my surprise, CJ was not afraid of the heights and loved looking out the windows.

As soon as CJ saw the dragon paddle boats, we knew that we had to go for a ride.  I reminded her that Dora always wants us to be safe so we made sure we wore our " we can be safe!"

After the paddle boats, we stopped for a little lunch and CJ couldn't resist the mechanical rides.

Giant crabs were on the loose!!

Inside the Visitor's Center was Fifi the a giant pink poodle. It has a bike underneath it so I assume it was designed to be a moving art piece.  CJ thought it was hysterical and wanted to ride it.

We had originally planned on going to the Science Center but decided that we would rather tour the harbor on the Water Taxi.  CJ had a BLAST!  She loved feeling the breeze on her face, looking at the water and seeing all the boats. 


I plan on turning some of the pictures that I took into an educational photo book for CJ.  Here are a few examples of what I plan on doing:

2 Gray Ships

7 Large Cylinders

What shapes do you see?

I love the architecture of the city.  It's a mix of historic and modern built next to each other.  Here are some of my favorite shots:

 World Trade Center & National Aquarium

If you're a fan of Homicide: Life on the Street, you might recognize this building as police headquarters.
The building has beautiful architecture and the patina is gorgeous!  I love taking close-up shots of architectural details such as this:

Details of the street light:

The USS Constellation. Notice the flag on the back of the ship and the smaller flag in the distance.

We spent several hours having fun at the Inner Harbor and CJ loved having alone time with her Mommy and Daddy.  By the end, she was so tired she passed out as soon as she got in her car seat.
